Daybreak in the Mountains

I added a backing layer of deep turquoise and a hint of pink to the painted blue and clear layer of glass, suggesting the gathering dawn.

Swimming through Sunlight

This commissioned piece was inspired by shaded blue/green water glass which reminded my client of seeing a shoal of shimmering fish in sunlit waters off the coast of Greece. To capture this graphic memory I painted fish on clear glass and superimposed a layer of textured water glass with the slight distortion of ripples.

Watching the Woods Fill up with Snow

The birch trees are painted on white wispy glass and backed with antique glass which is streaked with icy blue and deep rose (This work was inspired by Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening”.)

Rottingdean Windmill

To depict the windmill in a blaze of sunset, I picked out amber grasses out of painted pink/gold glass. A a deep blue/clear layer suggests the darkening sky.

A Hare with a View

I caught a glimpse of this lofty hare when driving into Rottingdean and was keen to set it in twilight, against bare branches shaped by sea breezes. To create a glow of light around the hare I combined a violet/blue glass with a clear wispy glass with traces of opacity.

Sunlight though Storm

Daylight shining through the glass to the front layer of this piece, with its opaque mist-like strands, creates an impression of turbulent clouds. The crackled texture of the middle layer of glass on which I painted the rocks and the darker tones of the waves allows the spray to shimmer.

Irish Castle

The castle, with its sweep of rocky layers, was painted on clear, crackled glass and backed with deep blue/clear glass. The front layer is a rare pink glass with traces of opacity which blurs the outlines and allows the castle to start to dissolve into the mist as light behind it fades.
